Some Updates

  • We ended our second year (2020) with 170+ memberships and donated $7,500 to the Fort Lee Public Library, which included contributions to the Library’s capital campaign, New York Times online subscription, a children’s program, and much needed additional ebook licenses.
    With the challenges of 2020, this accomplishment was all down to the considerable generosity of our members and the local community at large. Thank you!!
  • While our Library isn’t fully reopened to the public due to state restrictions, help us raise money every time you shop on Amazon. Login to with your regular Amazon username and password, select Friends of the Fort Lee Public Library from the list of charities, and the Friends will get 0.5% of your purchases from the AmazonSmile Foundation every time you shop using
  • Online membership forms for NEW members or RENEWALS are available by clicking “Join the Friends!” link at the top of this page. Renewals and new members pay the same dues amounts and are not prorated.
